High School of the Dead starts off in a really good way this time as it highlights the international aspect of the epidemic well and in a way that I want to see. Showing us events on board Air Force One with the First Lady being bitten and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs right behind her adds to the tension nicely, especially as he's practically begging the President to launch missiles on countries that could attack back with their own ICBMs if things continue to go south. It's a pre-emptive strike angle that makes an twisted kind of sense considering the situation. While I doubt we'd see the infected launching missiles anytime soon, at least on purpose, there will definitely be panicked and vengeful survivors who will want to get into those installations and strike anywhere they can.
On the flip side, we have the kids moving right along in Japan where they're making progress in their destination. But they have to take an amusing little side stop first for the girls to get undressed, chit chat about girly things and show off a lot of skin while teasing the viewer. It's even more amusing as it's done as the two guys are at the front of the humvee talking about weapons and plans, only to eventually turn around to see them all in school uniforms of different types, complete with leggings where appropriate, while wielding some impressive firepower. It's a double dose of beautiful, sweet fanservice that gives me exactly what I want out of this show from this particular angle.
